    If we could search surnames along with place of birth

    ...or search for both name, place and date of birth it would be useful even for Scandinavian -son,- dotter names.

    Automaticly adding Surnames from GEDCOM not always desired

    I uploaded my GEDCOM file and noticed that it automatically added all surnames included in the file to my surnames. This is not a very good option for Scandinavian family trees, since surnames was not family names until the 1900s. Before that, a surname was "son of xxx" or "daughter of xxx", this is not interesting when comparing with your matches.

    I now have to delete 20 pages of surnames, being careful not to delete the 10-15 that I did add manually before loading GEDCOM.

    This functionality should be optional.

    Thanks.
